[Introduction starts as:]
Having now completed the examination of the worms obtained during the cruise of the "Endeavour," it will be convenient to summarise the results of my work, which will entail to some extent a repetition of the introductory remarks in Part I. There it was noted that the "Challenger" obtained fifteen species of Polychaetes in the area covered by the cruise of the "Endeavour," of which twelve were new to science.
The present collection contains forty-one species, including a fragment of a species of Sigalion, an indeterminable fragment of a species of Phyllodocid, and a species of Halodora, to which I have been unable to assign a name. Of these forty-one, five were obtained previously in this region; seventeen species hitherto recorded in various other parts of the world are now added to the southern Australian fauna; and I have found it necessary to make sixteen new species, one or two of which may, however, be merely varieties of already known forms; and to erect one new genus for a Nereid, namely Cheilonereis.
